of the u.s. consulate in the city of benghazi. it happened after hundreds of people converged on the consulate to protest a little- known internet film that ridicules islam. the film was produced in the united states. it was just a year ago that the u.s. helped overthrow libya's dictator moammar qaddafi and christopher stevens was one of the americans on the ground then helping the rebels to victory. we have a team of correspondents we have a team of correspondents on this story and we will go first to david martin who's been talking to his sources at the pentagon. david? >> reporter: good evening, scott. u.s. officials say this was not an out-of-control demonstration, but a well-executed attack by a well-armed band of extremist. officials suspect the attackers where either linked to or sympathized with al qaeda and that they took advantage of a demonstration against that anti- muslim film to launch their assault on the anniversary of 9/11. american ambassador chris stevens and information manager sean smith were in the main building when the attack, which turned into a four-h

. brand-new details about that attack in benghazi that claimed the lives of the u.s. ambassador to libya, christopher stevens, and three other americans. the nation's counterterrorism chief is telling congress that armed extreme iists saw an opportunity to attack during an protest over an anti-muslim film and took that opportunity. >> i would say, yes, they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our country. >> sources tell cnn that ambassador stevens expressed concerns in security in the months before he died. he also acknowledged being on an al qaeda hit list. senator john mccain was practically seething last night when you talked to anderson on "a.c. 360". >> does it make any sense to you the level of -- or the small level of security he apparently had with him? >> it doesn't make any sense. and i'll tell you what else doesn't make any sense is the white house spokesman, secretary of state, and our ambassador to the u.n. stating categorically that it was not a terrorist attack, when obviously it had all the earmarks of a terrorist attack, including rocket-propelled grenade
over the country. it all started earlier this weekend. eastern city of benghazi was the scene. people there rose up following that attack and the killing of the u.s. consulate in benghazi and a lot of other trouble associated with these groups but nothing is easy here in libya. late word from benghazi one of those targeted militias says they're not going to give up and they're doing their own arresting. meanwhile some new killing of ambassador stevens and three other americans in benghazi nearly two weeks ago. "new york times" saying something like a dozen cia -- were based at the consulate there doing important work, tracking militant extremist groups in the region. they also say that at least some fbi agents are on the ground in benghazi. we've got a couple of sources saying otherwise but all agree that the insecurity situation in this country is making detective work on this crime very difficult indeed. finally, patti ann, back to that new word about the last hours of ambassador stevens. the libyan government is now saying he was alive when libyan civilians found him inside that sm
to libya, christopher stevens and three others in benghazi. that's just coming out of the white house. >>> some reports say that stevens died from a rocket attack and some day that he died in a car trying to get away from the consulate. some reports say that he three others were killed. >>> before this morning's rocket attack, angry protesters set fire to the consulate last night. they opened fire. four libyan soldiers reportedly died trying to defend the embassy. meanwhile, in cairo, protesters climbed the wall, tore down the american flag and burned it, and replaced it with a black islam flag. all of this in protest for a film that came out. >>> let's check with tucker barnes with the wonderful weather. >> nice cool start to the day. >> perfect. >> temperature in upper 70s, low 80s, what a nice time of the year. >> really is. >> warm during the day and cool at night. let's head to the headline for today. it continues right through the middle of the weekend. plenty of sunshine expected as well. back in the 40s, yeah, almost jacket weather here north and west. 50 reagan national. a lo
despuÉs que una turba enardecida se pronunciara en contra del consulado estadounidense en benghazi. tanto la secretaria de estado hillary clinton como el presidente de la naciÓn repudiaron el suceso.." los est fuertemente este indÍgnate e inesperado ataque estamos trabajando en conjunto con el gobierno de libia para asegurar a nuestros diploma ticos y hemos dado instruccion es a la administraciÓn de asegurar nuestras embajadas alrededor del mundo." pero el repudio tambiÉn se hizo sentir en libia . "condenamos cualquier intento de daÑar la imagen de nuestro profeta mohammed o cualquier intento de insultar nuestras creencias y religiÓn pero tambiÉn rechazamos, condenamos y criticamos fuertemente el uso de fuerza y el aterrorizar a civiles matando inocentes como un medio de expresiÓn " el evento coincidiÓ con la tragedia del 911 y con otra protesta similar en egipto. estas se surgieron tras haberse publicado en la internet un video en el que se burlaban del islam y seÑalaban al profeta mohammed como un abusador de menores, mujeriego y asesino. pero quien era christopher stevens?
other americans in benghazi, libya. joining us from washington louise gutierrez a member of the house intelligence committee. congressman, what say you? number one i'm mourning the death of a wonderful ambassador and three other americans condemning their death at the hands of extremist hands in libya. and and the same token i don't want to take a tragedy in libya and try to make political points out of it look, ambassador stevens was our uni have to the insurgent group before we got rid of colonel can qaddafi. in other words he was sent there by america to help foster democracy. which makes this even more ironic and greater tragedy. he understood and worked and he was then promoted to ambassador. america has a deep interest in making sure they have a keen relationship with the new people. i remember when senator mccain and others went theels. let's arm the rebels. while you may not have seen us overtly in terms of america's involvement, i recall that the first missile sent that sent qaddafi to his death were sent by america. and i think it was a good moment for america. >> bill: all
helped save from destruction? >> as the libyan president flew to benghazi to visit the destroyed consulate today, he said he deeply regretted the loss of life. >> we're doing our best to bring them to justice. >> the attack showed he does not have complete control of his country. in cairo where the united states turned its back on its old friend hosni mubarak, radicals are troying to destroy the embassy with running battles with riot police in tahrir square, tear gas and stones. it's ironic that with american diplomats inside the embassy who helped to give these demonstrators, these protestors a voice and allowed them to actually carry out this anti-american clashes that we're seeing right now. so what did washington think would happen if he won? as the new egyptian president morsi was campaigning to lead the world's biggest arab country in elections the u.s. supported, he used radical creatures to stump for him. >> without a doubt he doesn't support the violence. >> ed hussein, a former muslim extremist is now with the council on foreign relations. >> what motivates them is the
the prophet mohammed in very unflattering terms. that sparked protest both in cairo and in benghazi, libya. there is a serious situation. there is concern that the protests may spread to other countries. this is very much an ongoing situation. >> and just a little bit of background too on ambassador christopher stevens. we are looking at his picture right now. he had actually not been -- he had arrived in tripoli just a few months ago. he really hadn't been over there that long. any more information that we know about millennium and his service over there? -- about him and his service over there? >> i'm just reading that the deputy prime minister in libya just tweeted condemning the cowardly act of attacking the u.s. consulate and the killing of ambassador mr. stevens and the other diplomats. so i'm not sure that really serves as independent confirmation but it would seem to be another source indicating that this has taken place. we'll see what the response is from the white house today. there will have to be some kind of forceful response from this. there was a little bit of a misstep yes
in benghazi last week. the nation's counter-terrorism chief telling congress heavily armed extremists saw an opportunity to attack during protests over an anti-muslim film and took it. and the u.s. is looking for links to al qaeda. >> i would say, yes, they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy. >> now sources are telling cnn ambassador stevens was worried about his and others safety mentioning a rise in islamic extremism and growing al qaeda presence in libya. he also mentioned being on an al qaeda hit list. john mccain was outraged last night. >> does it make any sense to you the level, or the small level of security he apparently had with him? >> it doesn't make any sense. i'll tell you what else doesn't make any sense is that the white house spokesman, secretary of state and our ambassador to the u.n. stating categorically it was not a terrorist attack when obviously it had all the earmarks of a terrorist attack including rocket propelled grenades and heavy weapons and a very well carried out military operation. >> libyan military officials telling cnn they me
, it is calmer -- benghazi. and before admissions here. and around key government installations. security building. we have seen an uncrease in security there. and a lot of concern that there might be more attacks carried out by the militant groups. whether this attack was preplanned to happen on third baseman or was it just a protest over the amateur video that got out of hand. >>> when the news broke, we were speaking to witnesses in benghazi and it was a protest that became violent. it is getting clearer and clearer. and we are hearing the same thing here in libya from government officials that this is most likely a preplanned attack carried out by islamic extremist groups. they may have used the protest as a diversion or a cover up for their actual plans to attack the consulate yesterday from the libyan speaker of parliament. addressing the world. saying they will not allow libya to be used by the militant groups to carry out what he calls revenge attacks and that they did occur and coincide with the anniversary of september 1 1-rd and hinted that it was carried out by islamic extremi

stream. and we determined that the security at benghazi was appropriate for what we knew. >> reporter: just the day before the attack there were warning signs. al qaeda's lear urging libyans to retaliate against americans for the death of a libyan born militant. the state department was aware that that anti-muslim movie was airing on egyptian tv. yet there were no warnings about it to other u.s. missions. why there weren't warnings about the movie is a beg question. whenever there has been a denigration of the prophet muhammad, demonstrations have almost always followed. martha raddatz, abc news, washington. >> not just, warning signs, potentially ignored, the consulate there, was not as secure as most consulates. they didn't have bulletproof glass. don't have reinforced doors. intelligence agents haven't substantiated this said a spy must have known about the safe house in the u.s. consulate in benghazi. militants found it without a problem. >> hoond sight is 20/20. 30 american staffers and libyans were taken to the safe house. the government will not shut down at the en

of this to include benghazi was preplanned. it's not spontaneous. megyn: so you're saying they are feeling more emboldened now, that they don't believe that the american superpower will strike back in the way we once would have? >> exactly. and, of course, our ability to do so isdiminished every time we pull more troops occupant of a place like afghanistan t. out of a place like afghanistan. the sad fact of it is that the mission of the u.s. u.s. marinen this case with the fast units being sent out are to protect diplomatic missions from this kind of assault. well, there's not quite enough marines to go around if that's what we're going to continue to do, cutting the budget. so places like sudan which turned down the introduction of a marine security guard detachment and the enhanced fast unit that was supposed to go out there, what we really ought to be doing is telling sudan no marines, no aid. and this administration isn't about to do that kind of thing because they can't even acknowledge that they failed, they failed in the basic requirements of preparing for the kind of demonstrations that
